Inspection carried out on 7 January 2014

During an inspection in response to concerns

Thakray Dental Practice had three surgeries with a separate decontamination room. Surgeries one and two were located on the ground floor, surgery three was located on the first floor. The decontamination room was located on the ground floor and access to the decontamination room was via the kitchen/staff room. We carried out a visit to the practice to look at infection control systems. This was in response to concerns that had been raised with the Care Quality Commission.

During our visit we found that all areas of the practice were clean. Staff were trained in infection control and knew what to do to make sure that patients were safe. There were systems in place to reduce the risk and spread of infection. However these systems were not always implemented effectively.

Overall we found that this service had not achieved compliance with the standard we inspected at the time of our visit. However the practice manager took immediate action to reduce the risk of infection while we were on the premises. We have judged the risk to people to be moderate.
